Given a favourable libration, the mountains on the far side of Mare Orientale can be seen.

This is Copernicus with a high sun angle.  The seeing was quite good on the night of March 15th, 2003

 

This is Mons Gruithuisen Gamma and Delta.Map 9 in Rukl.  There is a summit craterlet atop Gamma, that is only 900 meters in diameter, which Rukl notes is a test object for larger telescopes. March 15th, 2003

 

Plato, and craterlets.  Once again, Rukl notes that these 2km craters are tests for larger scopes.  I have found them to be more a test of the seeing.  March 15th, 2003
